Looking for fun wedding transportation ideas for your big day? The logistics of getting to and from your wedding venue (and in some cases, a separate reception site as well) are something everyone will have to figure out. It might be easiest to assume everyone will just drive themselves, but in many situations, that may not be the best (or safest) plan. Which is why it's a very smart and thoughtful idea to make room in your wedding budget for transportation for yourself and your guests. Depending on your preferences and budget, there are many different options to consider.

Add at least 20 extra minutes to your timeline to account for traffic and stragglers. You might only need 45 minutes to get your guests to your 4 p.m. ceremony, but scheduling the first shuttle to leave at 2:30 p.m. means everyone will be comfortably seated before you walk down the aisle.

Get inspired with these wedding transportation ideas for the newlyweds as well as our top tips for getting your guests around.

1. Limousine

Timeless and elegant, a limousine is the traditional choice for wedding transportation. Make it a stretch limousine if you want your bridal party to jump in with you.

2. Antique Car

Ever dreamed of taking an antique car for a spin? Your wedding is the perfect occasion to rent a classic car.

3. Vintage Truck

Vintage trucks are perfect for country weddings. When the trucks are done up with flowers and garlands, you've got the epitome of country romance.

4. Horse and Carriage

You'll feel like Cinderella as you ride along with your very own Prince (or Princess) Charming. Best of all, the fairy tale won't end at midnight.

5. Tandem Bicycle

Add a little hipster flair to your wedding with a bicycle built for the two of you that just says "I do."

6. Vespa

Hop on and hang onto your partner. (This is probably better for brides sporting dresses that aren't floor length.)

7. Golf Cart

A golf cart comes in handy if your ceremony and reception are at the same venue but a bit of a distance away. Make sure it's decorated for the big day.

8. Gondola

If you're having your wedding on or near water, you can channel Italian vibes by riding off with your new spouse in a gondola.

9. Rowboat

Have a Notebook-inspired moment as your love rows you across a pond.

10. Sailboat

A step up from a rowboat, you'll feel honeymoon-ready boarding a sailboat (or for the more extravagant brides, you can upgrade to a yacht.)

For your bride tribe, consider getting extra creative with their rides. Our fave wedding party transportation ideas include getting your bridesmaids and groomsmen their own limo bus, party bus, or even repurposed school bus.

11. Taxi

For a classic wedding in the city, a vintage checked taxi is totally on theme.

For added entertainment, make the best man pull it.

13. Party Bus

For the couple that wants to ride along with the wedding party, nothing says "party" like a party bus.

14. Trolley Car

This one's another great (and unexpected) option for a couple that wants to ride with their besties.

15. Helicopter

For the ultimate exit, it really doesn't get more over-the-top than a helicopter. This one's perfect for the couple whose motto is "go big or go home."
